Subscriptions to Academic Search Elite -database and ePress Cancelled

Subscriptions to Ebsco Academic Search Elite (ASE) and ePress (database for Finnish electronic newspapers) will be cancelled starting on the 1st of January.


The Library decided not to subscribe to ASE due to decreased use. Many of the journals of ASE still remain in some other databases or they are available as Open Access versions. It is possible to order expired journals as single orders, too.


Reason not to renew the subscription of ePress is the huge price increase. Open Science Centre has informed the aggregator of ePress (LM Information Delivery) that subscription of the database could be possible it the pricing can be changed in some way.

Unfortunately, other ways to buy licences for electronic Finnish newspapers for libraries don't exist.
